Devante Parker impressing with work ethic

Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports that Dolphins coaches are saying,"few if any players have spent more time in the building than Parker since last season ended. He’s been focused on managing his health as well as studying film."

Fantasy Impact

After getting hammered by Adam Gase during the 2016 preseason for not showing enough dedication, Parker has now had glowing reports over the last two offseasons. While many will roll their eyes at the news, Parker has been extremely productive when on the field. There have been 25 games in his career where he's totaled at least five targets, and in those games he's averaged 68.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game, which amount to low-end WR2 numbers. Keep in mind that was with Jarvis Landry on the field, who is now in Cleveland. There's a realistic opportunity for Parker to see 120-plus targets if he stays healthy, and that would almost guarantee WR2/3 production out of him with a higher ceiling than most want to admit. At his current cost of WR39 in early ADP, Parker is one of the biggest steals at the wide receiver position.

Devante Parker retained through 2019

Miami Dolphins beat writer Barry Jackson is reporting the team has picked up WR Devante Parker's fifth-year option.

Fantasy Impact

Now that the Dolphins picked up Parker's fifth-year option, he'll be tied through the team until 2019. Parker, who is entering his fourth season in the NFL, hasn't loved up to expectations since joining the Dolphins in 2015, battling lingering small-tissue injuries in the process. However, with Ryan Tannehill returning, plus, the departure of Jarvis Landry, Parker should not only see a significant increase in targets, but he should also see an uptick in production. 2018 is Parker's make or break campaign.

Devante Parker brings in six balls in loss to Bills

Devante Parker tallied six catches for 64 yards on seven targets in the Dolphins' 22-16 loss to the Bills Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Parker showed flashes, but largely disappointed this season. With both Jay Cutler and Jarvis Landry free agents, his value will depend on how the roster shakes out in Miami.

Devante Parker with 63 yards in loss to Kansas City

Devante Parker had five catches for 63 yards in the Dolphins' 29-13 loss to the Chiefs Sunday. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Impact

Parker ended a promising but disappointing fantasy season with 63 yards versus the Chiefs. With the potential departures of Jay Cutler and Jarvis Landry, the fantasy future of the talented young receiver is yet to be determined.

Devante Parker active for Week 16

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Miami Dolphins WR Devante Parker (ankle) is officially active for Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Although he is coming off of a solid Week 15 performance, Parker remains a risky fantasy option for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs due to his inconsistency. I'd look elsewhere for a deep PPR option for Week 16.
